@byerussell Delta CEO Bastian steps something of a staircase recovery – demand has plateaued now but he thinks more people will come back (ie, a step up) by the end of the summer. $DAL.
@TheDEWLine You can’t say anymore that the US military will never buy an Airbus airliner. The US Army’s Aberdeen Test Center has just bought an Airbus A321 fuselage in order to blow it up.
@thepointsguy “It’s really important that we as a nation wear masks… not just on air travel but in life in general,” said @Delta CEO Ed Bastian. He added that it would be great for the federal government to reinforce that message $DAL.
@thepointsguy The decision to keep blocking middle seats says to me (@GlobeTrotScott) that @Delta is playing a long game here. CEO Ed Bastian talks about a premium airline. My gut: he’s gambling on decisions now winning over passengers for years to come. $DAL.
@UPSAirlines #ICYMI: The first of five additional MD-11s joining the @UPS fleet will be ready for service later this fall. The second comes later this year, with three more in 2021. #avgeeks.
